/ Nov 7, 2013

PS4

Sony’s PlayStation 4 console will be available in the US and Canada on November 15. Today the company unveiled the collection of entertainment apps that will be available when the console launches. In terms of original online programming, the obvious ones — Netflix and Hulu Plus — are all here, in addition to Crackle (which is owned by Sony) and Amazon Instant Video. Check out the full list:

Amazon Instant Video: Amazon Instant Video offers two great ways to watch movies and TV shows instantly, anywhere. Buy or rent from a selection of more than 150,000 titles or subscribe to Prime Instant Video and get unlimited streaming of tens of thousands of movies and TV episodes.

Crackle: A part of Sony Pictures Television, Crackle is a freely accessible multi-platform television network delivering original series such as Emmy®Award nominated “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee,” and hit movies and television programs in a variety of genres.

Crunchyroll: Watch the latest and best selection of Anime right from Japan such as “Naruto Shippuden,” “Attack on Titan,” “Bleach,” and more up to one-hour after Japanese broadcast!

EPIX: Authenticated subscribers on the PS4 system can instantly access and stream more than 3,000 titles on-demand, including top blockbusters such as “The Avengers” and “The Hunger Games” in HD, classic Hollywood franchises, award-winning original documentaries, plus music and comedy specials.

Hulu Plus: Hulu Plus offers unlimited instant streaming of current hit shows like “Family Guy,” “The Simpsons,” and “South Park” as well as original series including “The Awesomes” and “The Wrong Mans.”

NBA Game Time: Stay connected to live out-of-market NBA game action on the PS4™ system with NBA LEAGUE PASS Broadband on an authenticated basis for subscribers. Get access to real time stats, complete scores, stats and schedules for every game, and video highlights and recaps.

Netflix: Netflix members can instantly watch a wide variety of TV shows and movies, including exclusive series such as “House of Cards” and “Orange Is the New Black,” on the PS4™ system.

NHL GameCenter LIVE™: Instantly stream live out-of-market games* in HD quality with your NHL GameCenter LIVE™ subscription.

Redbox Instant™ by Verizon: Subscribers can stream from a library of hit movies on the PS4™ system and receive 4 DVD or Blu-Ray rental nights every month for new releases at the Redbox® kiosk. Everyone can purchase and rent the latest movies on-demand.

VUDU: Watch the world’s largest selection of HD movies and TV shows, including thousands of blockbusters, Hollywood classics and indies. Stream new releases before they¹re available on DVD, or build a collection of favorites without ever paying for a subscription.

YuppTV: YuppTV offers over 150 Indian TV channels Live and on demand, including a selection of over 600 Movies to watch anytime, anywhere.

Sony says PS4 users will be able to download these apps on launch day via the PlayStation Store, available via the web-connected PlayStation Network.

The PS4 launch comes a week before the Xbox One, which Microsoft has looked to position as an all-in-one entertainment system (with its own original shows!) rather than just a gaming console.

    Thanks for the article Sahil. Just want to inform all folks who live outside US that PS4 is a great media Player. If you want to access Netflix and other streaming stations on your PS4 you can use UnoTelly as I do to get around the geo block.
